“I used to be very shy. I hated going to a new classroom and having to make new friends, meet new teachers, and adjust to a new environment.”

“I didn’t understand at first why I couldn’t meet a guy for so long. But as time goes by, I understood why actresses usually get married late. I think their hearts for work become bigger and happiness from the work takes the most space in their hearts.”

“In order to date, you need to make up your mind to date, meet many people, and have blind dates offered to you, but that’s not easy. It’s more difficult as you get older. I don’t think it’s possible to do something by force, either.”

“When I got the script for ‘The Art of Seduction,’ I realised I’d never been in a comedy, so I decided to experiment. What the character went through could never happen in my own life.”

“Being a mother and wife are big roles.”

“I exercise, and eat good foods. I also take care of my skin.”

“I think part of maturity as an actress comes from their experience in getting married and having children.”

“I think my eyes are pretty, but I’m not sure with other parts.”

“I’d like the audience to see different sides of me.”

“I hope I don’t get too old before I can get married.”
